Olive oil, together with essential oil is just what you need for a hair treatment. Pour a little olive oil, virgin olive oil would be better, together with a few drips of essential lavender and rosemary oil. Begin by working the ends first, then from your scalp, massage down with your fingers. Leave it in for about half an hour, and for even better results, place a plastic groceries bag over your hair for the same time period. If you are one of the lucky ones with thicker hair texture, then we suggest leaving it in for a little bit longer, either wise, wash as normal and enjoy the effects of this simple treatment.
Or if you need a good exfoliator, simply add a few drops of olive oil to a cup of raw sugar and lightly scrub over your face. The olive oil does wonders for you skin while the sugar gets rid of unwanted old skin.
Cucumbers contain a highly beneficial ingredient. They have a mild astringent that is like miracle in a bottle when it comes to puffy eyes. Simply cut thin slices and place them on your eyes, cheeks, or anywhere else where you look slowly puffier. Sit back and relax for a few minutes while the cucumber does the rest for you.
Cod liver oil
For brittle nails, massage cod liver oil into your cuticles and nails. Cod liver oil is rich in vitamin A and after only three months your nails will be much stronger and your cuticle smoother.
Who would have thought, coffee is one of the main ingredients found in many expensive cellulite creams. So for an added relief of cellulite, rough rub ground coffee over your specific targeted areas and see how the cellulite melts away.
Struggling to get rid of your onion or garlic breath? Simply put some vinegar on parsley and chew it after your tasty meal. Now you never have to worry about the nasty after effects of garlic and onions.
The best way to ensure your nail polish would last you longer is to place it in your fridge.
Nicotine stained fingers
Except for the obvious fix, nail polish remover is the easiest way to get rid of nicotine stains on your fingers. Simply put a little bit on a piece of cotton wool and rub it over the nicotine stained finger.
If you suffer with backache, simply place a pillow under your knees when you are lying on your back, or between your knees when lying on your side to relief backache. This way you can be sure to get that well deserved 8 hours of beauty sleep in and feel more refreshed in the morning.
To whiten your fingernail tips, all you have to do is to simply soak them in a little bit of lemon juice for a few minutes.
Sloppy nail polish
If you have an unpractised hand when it comes to applying nail polish and you're left with sloppy nail polish, all you have to do is wait for the nail polish to dry. As soon as it has discharged, soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes. After that you'll be easily able to just rub of excess polish with a finger.
And now for the truly bizarre …
For baggy eyes, simply place a sardine under each of your eyes and leave it there for ten to fifteen minutes, or longer if preferred. You can even place them on your eye lid to help with wrinkles. Now how true this is we can not confirm, but the whole idea sounds pretty fishy.
They say beauty is hard work. We think that beauty is something to be enjoyed, it's nice to know that when I run out of my preferred beauty product that there is a home remedy close by. Although I for one still prefer the packaged products to the home remedies!
